Can Competition Bring Down ED Drug Prices?
Erectile dysfunction is a disease that has now ceased to be the kind of threat it used to be earlier. Thanks to the number of erectile dysfunction drugs that have been discovered in the recent years. Most of these drugs have been successful in doing away with the dangers of erectile dysfunction.
The ED drug market is now growing enormously. So much so that the demand for these drugs have triggered the vice of smuggling and selling of fake ED drugs Border collie puppies for sale. One of the main reasons behind the birth of such anti social elements is that the erectile dysfunction drugs are firstly very costly and of all very rare. These drugs are not readily available like other drugs and are not everybody’s cup of tea because they are very expensive and so everybody can’t procure them. This happens because the number of erectile drugs in the market is lesser than the actual demand. There are only around three successful and known erectile dysfunction drugs till date and so there is a monopoly in the ED drug market.
The very first drug that was recognized as an effective treatment of erectile dysfunction was Pfizer’s Viagra. The second is the Lilly Icos manufactured Cialis which took over Viagra in many parts of the world mainly because it had certain additional advantages and was also comparatively cheaper, so people started to order cialis over Viagra. Another ED drug named Levitra, manufactured by another drug giant Bayer is very useful for certain specific ED patients.
Even with the introduction of three ED drugs in the market, their prices did not fall. In fact they are quite high and so, many people remain out of reach of the benefits offered by these drugs. No doubt drugs like Cialis are cheaper and effective but they are only comparatively cheaper, many people still can’t afford to buy cialis or other related ED drugs.
Going by the market rules the prices of these drugs will fall to a reasonable rate only when the supply beats the demand. And for this to happen it is mandatory that there are new ED drug introductions in the market. It would be beneficial for the people if other big medical companies make an effort to invent effective erectile dysfunction drugs or other ED measures. Under these conditions the prices of the already existing drugs would naturally fall.
Erectile dysfunction is a disease and disease spares none. The same disease can happen to the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor. But the tragedy is that the cures are only available to a few. To top it all the cost is such that many of the patients have not even seen or heard of these drugs. Hence in the face of competition at least a larger portion of the people will be benefited. Not that the whole scenario would change but benefits can be reaped by a larger section. There is no doubt in the fact that drugs like Cialis work, so what could be better if competition can make cheap cialis available to all.
1. Put Your Trust In Your God. The Universe is controlled by a divine power. Put your trust in the power of prayer and listen to the answers. Throughout my marriage, I prayed for the strength to get through some very difficult times. Not being an addict myself, I cannot understand putting a chemical in my body and holding that chemical in a more important place than my family. I just don’t get it but in the end, if your spouse won’t seek professional help for drug and alcohol addictions, it’s probably time to go. I was so frightened, and I felt I had not option but to leave to protect myself (and the children). In the beginning, I was dumb-founded (I still am) that he would choose drugs over us, his family, but THAT WAS his choice. Although I can’t control his choices, I AM affected by his choices, and I CAN control HOW I will react to those choices. So, I pray…a lot.
2. Get Legal Advice – Know that anything a drug addict says, no matter how sincere it seems at face value, is driven by the drugs. Whether the discussion is about the children or money, don’t trust anything an addict says. A professional told me that when you are divorcing a drug addict, you MUST face the fact that a drug addict is having an affair! You (and the children, if there are children) are no longer the primary focus for a spouse with drug/alcohol issues. An affair with the drugs is very difficult for the other spouse to “fight”. (A friend of mine went through a divorce with a partner that was a chronic “cheater”, she felt my situation was easier. Divorcing a drug addict is the same as divorcing a “cheater” – the trust is gone! Once the trust is gone – it’s gone!) So, unfortunately, you must have legal representation, unless the addict is willing to sign everything over and just walk away. If your spouse is willing to “give” you everything, you should still have an attorney and perhaps an accountant review and advise you on any short term, long term and/or tax implications. Check with friends or go online and get referrals from chat rooms, web forums or even Twitter can guide you to websites to help you do some research, but in the end, get professional advice.
3. Get Support from Friends. A divorce is emotionally draining. Typically, your friends and family don’t want to hear it, but it’s really important to have someone that is willing to listen and just offer support. Not guidance, just support.
4. Get Therapy. If you can afford to visit with a therapist, I would highly recommend that you do that. A trained professional can help you understand the inner brain workings of a drug/alcohol addict. AND, whether you want to hear it or not, at some level you have some responsibility in all this. A therapist can help you see the areas where you have to take ownership of this crisis. There are studies out now, that have revealed that people with addictions have a gene that can be identified. You may have to face the fact that, perhaps, you were an “enabler”. Ultimately, though, the responsibility for the addictions rest squarely on the shoulders of the addict. Unless, of course, you were the one that held your spouse down and physically forced the drugs into their body.
